Spurs handed boost in chase for highly-rated 22-year-old Bundesliga striker

Published

Tottenham have been handed a massive boost in their pursuit of Moussa Diaby.

Tottenham Hotspur have renewed confidence in their efforts to secure the signing of Bayer 04 Leverkusen striker Moussa Diaby. According to The Express, The 22-year-old has been on the radar of many clubs, including our Premier League rivals Newcastle United. 

However, The Telegraph [Subscription Required] reported that the Magpies have decided to shift their focus to other targets, having been put off by the staggering £60 million price tag which Leverkusen have slapped on him. 

Diaby registered 17 goals and 14 assists in 42 appearances across all competitions this season, making him one of the hottest commodities in the transfer market. He clearly appears to be on the rise and could do with a transfer to the right team.

The Frenchman, should he make the move to Spurs, will very much be one for the future and wouldn’t mind learning from the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son – two of the very best in the world. 

Rather if anything, Diaby can take a page out of Son’s playbook and see how the South Korean’s career has rapidly progressed since he made the same switch from Leverkusen seven years ago.

Tottenham are also in contact with the agent of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, as revealed by Fabrizio Romano on Spurs fan Chris Cowlin’s YouTube channel

Arsenal and Real Madrid are also in the fray for Jesus. This makes Tottenham’s job easier and it is far from given that the club can beat them both to the Brazilian.

With Newcastle withdrawing from the race for Diaby, the ball is firmly in Tottenham’s court. However, the price tag of £60 million is likely to need negotiating for Fabio Paratici and the Spurs board to be convinced about this deal.

The last time Spurs raided Leverkusen, things did not go too shabbily. Son is today among the finest players in the world and also won the Premier League golden boot last season. Hopefully, Diaby too goes on to emulate him should he move to Tottenham.
